MountainSouthbound Train

Well she was born in a north woods town Twenty-one winters ago And she grew tired of the freezing cold And living in the blinding snow But this girl knew she wouldn't be there long 'Cause she had plans and dreams And she'd seen pictures of the sunshine state In the pages of the magazine So she waited them tables and she used her smile Saving every penny she can For a one-way Dixie bound Amtrak ticket Headed for the promised land Her momma and daddy begged her not to go When the day she dreamed of came And she waved goodbye sittin' way up high From the window of a southbound train Now she's got a fire burnin' deep inside Ridin' on a southbound train And the clickity-clack of that railroad track Only helps to fan the flames No more worries, no more cares She left them up in Bangor, Maine Now she's startin' a brand new life Ridin' on a southbound train Whoa... She said, 'Hello sun, good mornin' Daytona You're sure lookin' good to me With your ocean breeze and your tall palm trees And your southern hospitality' Now she's a knockout queenie in a string bikini She's drivin' all the boys insane And this all started with a small town dream And a ticket on a southbound train 'Cause she had a fire burnin' deep inside Ridin' on a southbound train And the clickity-clack of that railroad track Only helps to fan the flames No more worries, no more cares She left them up in Bangor, Maine Yeah she likes the boys with the southern drawl Soakin' up the sunshine, havin' a ball She'll be the first to tell you that she owes it all To ridin' on a southbound train Whoa... Oh...
